CHAPTER I: THE SEAT OF THE TROUBLE

THE "educated Negroes" have the attitude of contempt toward their own people because in their own as well as in their mixed schools Negroes are taught to admire the Hebrew, the Greek, the Latin and the Teuton and to despise the African.

Of the hundreds of Negro high schools recently examined by an expert in the United States Bureau of Education only eighteen offer a course taking up the history of the Negro, and in most of the Negro colleges and universities where the Negro is thought of, the race is studied only as a problem or dismissed as of little consequence. For example, an officer of a Negro university, thinking that an additional course on the Negro should be given there, called upon a Negro Doctor of Philosophy of the faculty to offer such work. He promptly informed the officer that he knew nothing about the Negro. He did not go to school to waste his time that way. He went to be educated in a system which dismisses the Negro as a nonentity.

HISTORY shows, then, that as a result of these unusual forces in the education of the Negro he easily learns to follow the line of least resistance rather than battle against odds for what real history has shown to be the right course.

A mind that remains in the present atmosphere never undergoes sufficient development to experience what is commonly known as thinking. No Negro thus submerged in the ghetto, then, will have a clear conception of the present status of the race or sufficient foresight to plan for the future; and he drifts so far toward compromise that he loses moral courage.

The education of the Negro, then, becomes a perfect device for control from without. Those who purposely promote it have every reason to rejoice, and Negroes themselves exultingly champion the cause of the oppressor.

This is why whites dismiss, dicredit, deny and accuse blacks of playing the race card or VICTIM PEDDLING.

For get the past, forget your civilization, forget your contributions, for get a black was murdered tied to the back of a pickup truck and forget Dr. Laura.

Don't remember nothing and be nonentity.

Exactly.But blacks are a simple minded people,so this was inevitable.They would find the time to talk all day about nonsense rather than things we should really be focusing on.This is why blacks are so easily dominated by the white man.

This book "Miseducation of the negro",was truely ahead of it's time.It was written in 1930 but everything said in that book corresponds to this generation,as the video above can attest.

i stopped posting comments on a lot of forums because the lack of historical context or knowledge in general. many black people can only see our condition through europeanized modes of thinking because they dont know thier own african models. Worst than that is many negroes are resistant to learning about themselves. I commend the posters of this thread. Its good to see brothers and sisters who dont reduce our history to irrelavance.

I'm sorry that you see us that way. But many of us have been conditioned, and groomed this way over time.

You're in denial.I think you do know it's true,especially if you're a person that grew up in an earlier generation,it would be worst,because it is only recently they've been giving blacks some crumbs here and there.What are black people being thaught about themselves in American schools?What have they been thought besides the usual Martin Luther King,the fact that they're descendants of slaves,and little things that relates to their status in america?Everything was post transatlantic slave trade knowledge.But we were thaught about Rome,Greece,Julius Caesar,George Washington,Abraham lincoln,and everything from a Eurocentric perspective.

Nahh you're in denial and it's far from true. The black Americans in my circle has moved beyond this bullshit. Of course the black people I associate with don't resemble any of the nonsense I see posted on topix every day anyway

There's a reason it's called HISTORY. Join us in 2010 where it's great to be black, successful, and thriving

If it was far from true,you would not have avoided 95%of my post to comment on the first sentence.And this is not bullshyt.I do well,my intent is not to beg and complain,this is only a candid discussion and analysis of the reality.

To be honest I've read the book so there was no need for me to read the rest of your post. It was relevant in 1930, it's not in 2010

No,If it was only relevant in 1930 why does everything said in that book still correspond to this generation?,as the video above can attest.

My younger generation just graduated with a double major from Purdue University this spring and is currently working at an engineering firm in Massachusetts. His condition is just fine. You were saying?
